Senior Expert for a study on Conflict Minerals on the Great Lakes Region

Project: Study on State of the implementation of the Regional Initiative on Natural Resources to address the problem of Conflict Minerals in the ''International Conference on the Great Lakes Region'' area and recommendations for follow up
Position: Senior Expert in International Affairs / Development related issues / Peace building / Conflict prevention related to natural resources and Junior Expert in Minerals Geology
Location: Great Lakes Region
Deadline: 25/11/2014
Language/s: English, French, Ki-Swahili
Period: January 2015 – December 2015
Indicative starting date: 12/01/2015
Global objective of the project:
The study's objective is to formulate an accurate assessment of the level of implementation of the ICGLR Regional Initiative on Natural Resources (RINR), particularly the regional certification mechanism, and of broader conflict minerals policies and/or schemes, as well as to provide recommendations to the EU for future financial and policy support in this area.
Specific objective of the project:
  • To undertake an inventory of other initiatives on conflict minerals in the Great Lakes, including those of MONUSCO and of EU Member States and to assess their complementarity with EU policies and programmes.
  • To prepare an overview of efforts to address the illegal exploitation of tin, tungsten and tantalum, identifying in particular actions and support strategies that would leverage the EU’s added value, and elaborating progress criteria specific to the 3Ts sector through which impact can be monitored and evaluated. The same task should be carried out for the gold sector. The overview will include information on the estimate/data of mineral deposit in the Great Lakes countries and data on the exports of the 3Ts and gold by country (trend over past 10 years).
  • To assess the scale and depth of implementation of the ICGLR RINR, at both the regional and national level.
  • To assess the scale and depth of implementation of the Regional Certification Mechanism (RCM) at the regional level (competencies of the ICGLR secretariat) and at national level, particularly in DRC, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda and the transit countries (Kenya and Tanzania).
  • To provide an overview of the interconnection and gaps between the RCM and due diligence schemes, taking into account the programmes and initiatives implemented by public and private stakeholders, such as the one developed by ITRI, the tin industry association.
  • To assess the need to fully operationalize the RCM according to the Certification Standards adopted in 2012.
  • To set out the political and technical requirements and financial resources needed to enable the operationalization of the RCM at both regional and national level, also in view of possible cooperation with existing private sector initiatives. Both full operationalization and a partial operationalization should be considered.
  • To draw up recommendations to increase the depth and scale of the implementation of the RINR and the RCM as well as ways to align with due diligence efforts (including an estimate of human and financial resource needs).
  • To provide recommendations to the EU for future financial and policy support in this area.
Qualifications required:
Team Leader / Senior expert in International Affairs / Development related issues / Peace building / Conflict prevention related to natural resources (100 WDs)
  • Educations at least up to Master's degree or PhD level
  • At least 10 years professional experience in international affairs/development related issues/peace building/conflict prevention related to natural resources
  • Minimum of 4 years of experience on African affairs, particularly on the Great Lakes region and project management
  • Strong background on issues related to minerals and/or natural resources. Proven knowledge of the ICGLR and the RINR. Thorough knowledge of the RCM and its components. Experience should include working on the development of regulatory frameworks, standards and procedures directly related to good governance and due diligence applicable to high-value minerals from the Great Lakes region

First Quantum Minerals Ltd. has grown from a small mineral operation in Zambia into a multinational mining business in less than two decades, with a global portfolio of copper and nickel assets in Europe, Africa, Australia and South America. This phenomenal growth is down to FQM people who have strived to be Bolder, Smarter and Driven in everything they do.
In March 2013, First Quantum Minerals acquired Inmet Mining Corporation, a Canadian-based mining company primarily producing copper and zinc from mines in Finland, Spain and Turkey, with also a major copper deposit under development in Panama, known as Cobre Panama. The combination of the First Quantum and Inmet assets has created one of the world’s leading copper producers with a geographically diversified portfolio of high-quality operations and development projects in eight countries across five continents.
With a strategic plan to produce more than 1.3 million tonnes per annum of copper within five years, the Company is poised to become the largest, widely-held pure-play copper producer and one of the top five copper producers in the world.
First Quantum Minerals Ltd. is an established and growing mining and metals company currently operating four mines and developing projects worldwide. Our aim is to become a globally diversified mining and metals company.
We currently produce copper cathode, copper in concentrate, nickel, gold and sulphuric acid.
First Quantum's current operations are the Kansanshi copper-gold mine in Zambia, the Guelb Moghrein copper-gold mine in Mauritania, the Kevitsa nickel-copper-PGE mine in Finland and the Ravensthorpe nickel-cobalt mine in Australia.
When our current projects are in operation, we expect we will be able to triple our annual copper production capacity and be positioned within the world's 10 largest copper producers.
